all, -- itis a one-size-fits- all and does not recognize the difference in the way cyclists use the road from madras. people were given a citation for rolling to a stop sign at an intersection that was empty. -- rolling through a stop sign at an intersection that was empty. if there is no clear direction on what kinds of cyclist behavior should be targeted and what kinds of madras behavior should be targeted, you're going to continue -- what kinds of motorist behavior should be targeted, you are going to continue to seek a slap- enforcement of things that do not pose a continuing danger. particularly around the fact that in order to come to a full and complete stop on a bicycle often will slow the entire intersection down. i come to an intersection. very frequently, the motorists will go through and i will go through, because if i was to come to a full or complete stop it stops everybody behind me. i am not advocating that we change the law, but i am advocating for a sensible solution that recognizes that bicyclist use the road differently. we ride to the side whenever possible

and actually pg and e was an original founder that got us started on our efforts. and of the things we work on one is to maintain and to continue to update our neighborhood disaster response plan. we have been developing a plan and our updating it and continuing to revise it. the plan basically out lines how the various organizations within our network will work together and coordinate and consolidate their resources and efforts in the result of a disaster. the plan defines the roles the agencies will play. what roles will the medical facilities play and how the 3 will consolidate the resource. the crisis counseling what the roles are. also important factor obviously is how we can stay in communication in the aftermath. with the assumption in a major earthquake there may be not power or working land lines or cell phone service. one thing we did was to purchase radios for shart range communication and hand radios for our central system to communicate with dem and other organizations. sorry. >> and so, you know, and the plan also identifies potential shelter areas in the local area. also des

[applause] you do not have to be a rocket scientist to understand. all of us who have been involved in the criminal-justice system know where people who commit crimes come from. they are poor people, people of color, victims of abuse, the mentally ill, people with substance abuse problems. there are the people that fall through the cracks of society. but that is th

network all of us up here. i hope throughout the day it's driven home that it begins in the community. you can out reach to the organizations and city departments and get the support you need but it come back to the community. i really want you all to leave here today with the tools and strategies you need to go forth and do the right thing in your communities and build strength and power. it's up to all of us to continue to build community and organize. i thank you all for your participation. we will stay here for a bit to answer any other questions people have as they are leaving. thank you all very much. [applause]. i have a news letter and people have things to distribute. >> robert's rules in brief is right here. this is the break outsession on disaster preparedness. many of you were here for the lunchtime speaker talking about the broad more district about how community building before a disaster aides in recovery. and that's a lot of what we are trying to generate through the neighborhood empowerment network. we know in san francisco it's not if we have a big disaster it's when. us

[laughter] guesstimate. >> bases on that scale are expensive. anything that involved concrete is expensive much remoremoving . >> no, not in the end. >> was there a neighborhood organization? >> there is a neighborhood organization that encomp uses that area the hayes valley neighborhood association which i am a member of. and they have been supportive. something they plugged into immediately because it's in the market/octavia plan. it's identifia
has two commercial use tenants. in addition to these, there are various underground easements. earlier in july, the transportation authority approved the impact relocation study. it addressed how the 55 residents of chinatown will be relocated. they need to be provided comparable housing. that was approved. right now, the mta is negotiating the acquisition of the properties. they should go to bid by march of this year. also part of the project is an arts program, which is in accordance with seven to discuss city policy. -- san francisco city policy. the purpose of this is to commission some of our local pieces. right now, the budget for this portion is $14.5 million. basically, it is intended to enhance the rider's experience. you notice the station we have on market street right now are rather bare, except for advertising -- utilitarian is a better word. to that effect, in july of this year, two artists were selected for the project. they are now in the development stage. mta submitted the report for the new starts. the letter for prejudice approval. that will allow them construction
congested. people will use this corner as a right-hand turn that will not stop. i think that this will cause problems and they will take into consideration the traffic study report. maybe we can have more crosswalks hot -- crosswalks. sometimes they do not. the second thing is to create more space on the sidewalk so that the residents will have more space because we do have a lot of people that are handicapped and have wheelchairs. all of that can be in consideration. i don't think that anyone who necessarily fight a hospital coming in but i heard some concern about the job. it is people in this committee. the community would love to have jobs in this area. even though they think that they have a voice, we are having the contention of 2010. if they would like to donate funds to us and our committee, we will be happy to accept the donations so they will be part of our community service. thank you. >> good afternoon. i am a resident in the tenderloin and i work as an organizer. a lot of good points have been made about people's concerns and the opposition. i will not repeat what has been said.
volunteer hours and given us a sense of hathey look like. that's what we really like. and the volunteer hours can be inunskilled labor or professional services those canning volunteered up to 70 dollars an hour. if you have an architect in the neighborhood donating their designs that's a 70 dollar value. you can quickly come up with a nice match if you have a robust community. that is the selling thing the more you have the more you can do and the more likely you will get our grant and several grants. and then you go to other grants from other institutions like san francisco beautiful. so then to further emphasize the community challenge portion of the match, we then score applications once they come in. with a heavy emphasis on community building and community benefits. if you have the application package it's self explaintory 35 points to community benefits. 20 points to neighborhood participation. 30 pounts toward project feasibility. the paps, 20 points is sort of furthered by 10 points in the community benefit's section. a lot is geared toward projects that have a lot of neighborho
imagine. first, start with the stuff that you like to put in your dishes. if you use a lot of parsley, put it in there. maybe broccoli, cauliflower? in my case, i'm a huge fan of fresh beets. i love beets. i also love arugula. there's nothing like an arugula salad. and heck, it works in soups and on pizzas. and i also use a lot of chives. so that's what's going to go into my garden. first steps with this wine barrel here include a little bit of gravel in the bottom, one to 2 inches. a high quality potting soil, too. be sure to read the label. you want things like kelp meal, feather meal, bat guano. this is good stuff for inside your garden. once it's in there, you're ready to rock and roll. you get planting by mixing in a diversity of plants. break up the roots a little bit. plant to the same depth as where the plant may have been inside the 6-pack. get a few of those guys in there. make it look pretty. it doesn't have to be perfect, because this is your home farm. some flowers. it's already looking wonderful. we don't want to forget some fertilizer, too. throw a couple of
more question. who's developing tools to be using or measuring. is that with you kevin? >> it's a partnership. all of the dcyf date us. they do go through ri tu cana. so we work in partnership on many of the projects with d crrks yf. >> ok. so -- dcyf. >> ok. so to measure the program's effectiveness, both of you are developing the measures. certainly school attendance and school engagement is going to be at the top of the list. we're incorporate rating the school require jments -- requirements. our post secondary program is college prepared, college ready, there are goals that defined their readiness. and i i that those certainly -- the goals that we have within our high schools. building goals to identify as students get to their senior year how ready they are. they have a post secondary success plan. attending school, engagement, like i said building a portfolio of their experience with their success with the big picture. they have -- they actually do oral presentations. what's it called? exhibition. thank you they actually locate their learning. so it's atanments of those

play republican and democrat politic politics is another day we lose. don't you see they are using us on that game? you have to see it through their eyes. this is what they see. things are unsustainable. everybody knows, it's unsustainable. so how to solve it now? we say small government, they say redistribution of wealth. not between the rich, not from rupert murdock to you. but from you to venezuela. redistribution of wealth and global government run by elites. once you understand this, this story is going to make sense. this is happening today. hillary clinton wants global standard for cook stoves. what? if you are looking at life, free market solution, small government, this is unsustainable. this makes no sense. you say what is she doing? cook stoves? this of this not through your eyes but their eyes. cook stoves. earth has a temperature. redistribution of wealth and global framework. re-read the goals. clinton says she wants to boost access to large-scale carbon financing. redistribution of wealth. because it's unsustainable. she added our long-term goal is to have a universal a
